I thought that flylines were generally 20 or 30 pound test... I think my sinking lines are 30... I know my backing is 30... my tippets will vary as usual from 16 to 20.... in mid season. I agree the tippet should be the weakest kink.. when I have caught the bottom on an old lobster trap or log.. if I have to break off ,itis the tippet that breaks... sure would not like to see my line break on a pull off.
